The Gza Is Da Bomb!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Liquid Swords (Audio CD)
To my mind, this album is the Wu's finest moment to date (end of 1999). There is absolutely no filler on this joint, and every track stands out. The usual Wu-Gambinos contribute : Inspectah Deck, Chef Raekwon, Ghost Face Killah, U-God and Method Man, and everyone of them represents as only the Clan can. Newer artists, such as Dreddy Kruger, Streetlife and Killah Priest also make an appearance and all shine, showing that the Wu can only become more influential in this rap game as they keep finding artists of the highest calibre. Undoubtedly the aspect that sets this apart from other Wu-releases however, is the stunning production by the Rza. Although it contains the usual elements of martial arts talk, film samples and spare beats, the Razor is absolutely on point, making this one of the most distinctive and essential hip-hop releases of the 90s.
